In the community forest of the village of Doussala, located in the province of Nyanga, the NGO PROGRAM works with local populations to secure a forest of 4 square kilometer sheltering several families of gorillas. Since 2004, we maintain a trail network and employ the village youth to follow these gorillas. Through regular contact with a particular gorilla group, we are experimenting with a product tracking wild gorillas in this forest. Accompanied by trackers and guides, you will go in search of the silverback and try to trace it.
